Over the years I've sustained a torn meniscus, twisted ankles, a broken toe and lots of scratches (from their nails) as a result of doing something with my dog(s). Recently, it was a different type of injury. And truthfully, my dog really did do it. He gave me a black eye! How did it happen? I was reaching down to pick up a puppy and Tyro, my sweet 5-year-old male Vizsla, was milling around me and just happened to do a hop and skip as I reached down. The result was a bone to bone encounter of the extremely painful kind - at least for me! He got me right by the upper corner of my L eye socket. Most dog owners would probably think it was Hubs who did it but dog owners wrote me to say something similar or worse (like chipped teeth) had happened to them. Mine is 'only' a bad bruise and will heal without expense in a couple of weeks.
|Day 1, not too bad|
|Day 2 - getting worse|
|Day 3 - do I dare appear in public w/o sunglasses?|
